It is always such an honor when another photographer asks you to photograph them! When Gracie reached out to me about capturing their maternity pictures for their first child, I was so happy! Though we have known each other for about a year, it has only been through Facebook. I could not wait to meet Gracie, her husband, and their little puppy!
Gracie chose the gorgeous venue, James Madison’s Montpelier, in Madison, VA! Even though we live about 30 minutes away, I have never been there! While driving up to the visitors center, I was wowed by the property; the house and the gardens were impeccable! Seriously, I need to go back there and enjoy a tour of the full property! For anyone looking for a Summer activity, I recommend stopping by!
Despite it being overcast during our session, it was super hot! Gracie, Ron, and Buddy were such great sports as we traversed the beautiful gardens! I just love when couples and families include their fur babies in their session, and Buddy was no exception! Is he not super adorable in his little bowtie?!
I have so many favorites from my time with Gracie and Ron, but my absolute favorites are the ones with the hydrangeas! As we were walking up to that area, I could not believe my eyes: a gorgeous lane of hydrangeas, something that I did not think was still in season! As Gracie and Ron nuzzled in and looked super adorable, I just knew these pictures were going to look amazing!
Gracie and Ron, thank you so much for allowing me to capture your maternity session! I am so excited for you to welcome your precious baby into this world any day now! <3 I cannot wait to see pictures and hear the name you both chose!
